Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane breaks Wayne Rooney and Thierry Henry record

According to Goal (h/t The Daily Star), Tottenham Hotspur ace Harry Kane has broken an impressive record set by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry and Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney.

The English skipper managed to write his name in the history books in the Premier League clash against West Ham United yesterday, Kane scored two goals and assisted a third in what was ultimately a 3-3 draw.

His two goals and an assist made him the first player in nearly a decade to move into double figures in goal involvements within the first five games of a Premier League campaign.

Kane has 12 such contributions, of which five of them are goals. The previous record was jointly held by Henry and Rooney, who achieved their tally in the 2004/05 and 2011/12 seasons respectively.

According to the report, Kane’s second goal gave Spurs their quickest three-goal haul in a Premier League game for more than 13 years. They previously scored three in the first 14 minutes against Derby County in August 2007.

Kane has developed into a serial assist getter this season. The Spurs star set up Son Heung-Min to open the scoring in the very first minute. The South Korean returned the favour before a Sergio Reguilon cross was headed in by Kane for Tottenham’s third.

It was a night of attaining records as Kane and Son saw their partnership potentially reach new heights. The link-up on the night took the duo to the brink of matching a club-record for successful combinations in a single Premier League campaign.

As yet, Kane and Son have already combined for eight goals. That is just one behind the record tally set by Teddy Sheringham and Darren Anderton in both the 1992/93 and 1994/95 campaigns. It was also matched by Sheringham and Chris Armstrong during the 1995/96 campaign.

With 33 more games to go, it appears to be a case of when and not if the duo will take the record for their own.
